what is COSY CONVOS?
There's so many podcasts these days in today's overcrowded climate, it almost seems silly to start another one. But starting COSY, our independent magazine sharing the perspectives of people worldwide, showed us that there are so many important subjects and ideas that hardly reach the light of day.
When we talk about serious subjects like...
...it's easy to feel over our heads. But asking questions and engaging in conversation is the simplest and most effective way of understanding other people's worlds. This is what we seek to do on COSY CONVOS.
A note from our host...
After deleting social media in the pandemic, it’s been pretty difficult to meet new people. I didn’t fully appreciate the extent to which we rely on these apps to make new connections - and even then, a DM hardly scratches further than the surface of routine small-talk.
Following on from the amazing journey we’ve already embarked on with COSY, reading and sharing so many stories, I’ve been grateful to have the opportunity to forge a new social life - meeting people all around the world where we can cut the smalltalk and discuss what’s really on our minds. I learn so much from each one. At times, it feels like therapy.
I promise to do things different to other shows by fact-checking every convo, define complex terminologies when they appear so nobody feels left out, and challenge commonly held perspectives, be that from me, the guest, or wider society. As much as my curiosity can feast on so many interesting topics, I am always considering how it sounds to you - the viewer or listener.
Only the most important and enlightening convos leave the cutting room floor.
We have also considered how to create a holistic experience with COSY CONVOS - allowing you to engage whichever mood you’re in. You can enjoy the wonderful visuals, definitions and contexts when you watch the show, or listen to our sparkly audio-only version when commuting, cleaning your house, or falling asleep…
Whether it lasts 10 episodes or a thousand, I am thrilled to be on this journey with you. Please let me know what you think, and feel free to join our collective convo too!
